Reported as DE70579


DE70579 was reviewed by engineering and product management.  It turns out the page is working as designed for now.

The assumption of behavior  presented here  is incorrect. The expected behavior is for the GROUPING ROW in the Resources by Role layout is to NOT include the amounts from any 'role' type of resource.  

The  expectations were misled because the total amount in the grouping row is including the amounts from a 'role' resource.

The plan is to correct the amounts in the GROUPING ROW in the 'Resources by Role' layout, NOT for the child detail rows for a 'role' resource. 

So, the page may be causing incorrect assumptions, but there will be updates in future releases to change this.
